Moroccan and American Musicians Bridge Culture and Silence

Members of Louisiana’s Southern University Marching Band already knew that music transcends age, race, language and culture. One night in Morocco, 14 members of the band’s drumline, along with three of its directors, learned that it transcends sound as well. The performance for several hundred in Rabat’s Mohammed V National Theatre will keep the band’s drummers talking for years: Moroccan musicians who joined them for the evening, like many members of the audience, were deaf.
